Details:     This turned out to be a nice dive.  I wasn’t expecting the vis to be any good, and there were kids everywhere jumping off the wreck, so i thought the dive could only be annoying. I decided to explore some of the sheltered areas of the wreck, so i wouldn’t get jumped on. Spent a fair bit of time in the old boilers trying to work with ambient light, and under some of the wreckage where the fish were hiding.  The dominion was covered in hincksi algea like curlewis and a pipehore was hanging out in some of it.  I also found a speargun which someone had managed to tightly wedge the spear into parts of the wreck.  

Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm , dual SS200 strobes .
